This is a review of the standard box.
This is the letter that arrived in this month’s box. This month’s SUPER box included a Parrot AR. Drone 2.0 With Live Video Streaming! Next month, they will be sending out at least THIRTY-SIX SUPER boxes containing a 3D Virtual Reality Headset! How exciting! This month there is also a 20% off coupon code for 13deals.com.
This is a separate notice about the 20% off coupon for 13deals.com.
Top Chips Maker and Slicer Set – Value $6.25
I’m not 100% sure how I feel about this. I’m trying to really get the kids off the junk food. On the one hand, this seems like it would make chips that are less unhealthy because of a reduction in fat, but on the other hand, microwaving potatoes seems like it would probably rob them of whatever sparse nutrients they had to begin with. I guess I’ll just have to try it out and see. Maybe it would work with sweet potatoes!
DCI Happy Hour Glass – Value $7.89
This is so deliciously gimmicky, with a pint glass on one end and a shot glass on the other! Am I a horrible person for immediately wondering how I would get the shot into the beer? I hope it’s only because I am good at spotting design flaws.
Wow, who would have thought that the most valuable item in this package would be a 4-pack of light bulbs? The reason is that they provide the equivalent of a 40-watt bulb for 6-watts of energy, so they could result in a fairly big savings on electricity, and they last 20x longer than regular bulbs. I did try one out and it seems bright enough, and it worked, so these will definitely come in handy!
Ultra Light Parachute Hammock w/ Built In Travel Bag – Value $12.49 (originally $39.99)
It’s a hammock! I absolutely love hammocks! I am so happy to have received this! It’s travel-ready, too, so we can take it with us when we go camping.
Verdict: Usually my Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome has more items in it, but the (original) retail value of everything totals about the same amount as usual (about $82), so I’m happy with that. I am very excited about the hammock, curious about the bulbs, and everything else was kind of just fine. I think this is a really fun box, and a great way to discover products you otherwise might never have even known about!
